1Cademy is a collaborative community that supports interdisciplinary research and learning through content generation, mapping, and evaluation. We have multiple successful communities from various fields collaborating regularly by summarizing and organizing content on the platform. This community is focused on learning how to make healthier, more engaged online communities in order to improve our users’ learning, contributions, and experience.This research team is dedicated to uncovering, presenting, and compiling the latest literature and research on creating and maintaining engaging and beneficial online communities. Our goal is to understand how to foster online communities where users actively contribute their ideas and value the perspectives of their peers. We are seeking a team of dedicated students to conduct thorough research in various disciplines including social science, cognitive science, information science, and education. Utilizing the 1Cademy platform, we will take notes, organize ideas, and map concepts from the literature we find. Ultimately, our aim is to apply our findings to make meaningful improvements to the 1Cademy platform and enhance the user experience of our online communities.
One of the most important aspects of 1Cademy is its unique knowledge representation format. To become a researcher on 1Cademy, you should first engage in one of our ongoing research projects, as a participant. In the project, randomly chosen for you, we will test which type of knowledge representation format works better for your reading comprehension, short-term learning, and long-term learning. This will not only help us improve the design of 1Cademy, but along the way, you will get experience about how to use 1Cademy. For this purpose, you should create an account on our research website and specify your availabilities for three sessions with our UX researchers. In the first session, they will ask you to read two short passages and answer some questions about those passages. This will take an hour. The second and third sessions will be only for 30 minutes each and follow a similar format. Note that it is necessary to complete the second and third sessions, exactly three and seven days after the first session. So, please carefully specify your availability on our research website.
